The Johns Hopkins Hospital is a magnificent institution. The nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, and technicians work well together to provide optimal care for patients. Despite the size of the hospital, the Hopkins community seems close-knit and supportive of one another. It has truly been a pleasure to have worked at Johns Hopkins for the past four years. I highly recommend working at Hopkins, especially if you intend to continue furthering your education. Hopkins provides many opportunities for career advancement.
Johns Hopkins is located where the population is culturally diverse. However, the staff lacks cultural diversity and sensitivity to the population it services. The nursing staff and management is predominantly caucasian women who do not seem to know about or respect other cultures. Then nurse to patient ratio is high. The nurses don't have advocates (no union) and when nurses advocate for themselves they are bullied by upper management and other floor nurses seeking upward mobility and see this toxic culture of bullying as their only way to advance within the Hopkins system.

The facility is patient focused and uses a team based collaboration approach to patient care. In my opinion, the nurses and clinical staff of Johns Hopkins hospital are second to none. The staff here are a large family dedicated to team work, collaboration, respect and well-being.
I worked for the Health System for 17 years as a billing representative. I enjoyed being a long-term employee and team member. I especially enjoyed the assistance I got with my college education as an employee there.
Would have liked a greater opportunity for career advancement
JHH is a very diverse place to work. I feel safe with security walking around the hospital. Just about everybody you walk pass greats you with a smile and either a good Morning or good afternoon. My managers and coworkers are awesome to work with. It makes you feel like your working with your family.

This place like every other job has its ups and downs. I loved working with patients from all over the place. The management here is not good. The pay is not as equal to other top medical facilities in the area. The name Johns Hopkins is heard and many feel it is the best. To me personally, it is over rated. There are plenty of other health care facilities around that are just as good, if not better in some areas.

A typical day starts with report from the outgoing nurse about what happened during the night or during the day and the nurse makes a plan for the day. I have learned about team work as one of the important factors for an effective outcome. I enjoy working with my manager as she gives support and supplies to do our job. Johns Hopkins has a good work place culture of feeling valued. Hardest part of what I do is when we can not save a patient.Most enjoyably is when you save a life.
Really wonderful place to work because of the staff. Forget the corporate deal of any place to work it is all about the people! Made great relationships with people inside and outside who came to visit Hopkins.
I'm very busy at work everyday is a challenge. Everyday we have changes & we must adjust our work zones. working in different climates on the loading dock can be the hardest part. Management is pretty fair on certain situations but i think it could be more better
John Hopkins was a professional organization that treated its employees with respect and willingness to allow them to excel at their on pace. schedules were fair and time off request were offered honor per the request of the staff
